She wasn't telling the whole truth. I knew Qiao Yi's mother. I knew her temperament too. If Qiao Yi's father weren't sick right here, she would've packed up her bags and left. She wouldn't give him a chance to explain himself.
"Where's your mother right now?"

"It's alright. She's been through a lot in life. This isn't going to get her down."
